Studying English with Philosophy to acquire knowledge related to your professional, academic, or social activities, will broaden and enhance your career prospects.
Our distance learning courses are modelled on teaching at the University of Oxford to include guided home study, one-to-one tuition, and free reading and AV lectures.
Students agree that one-to-one tuition is the most powerful and effective element of our courses as it motivates, inspires, and leads to a deep understanding of English.
You choose a topic for each study assignment and work at your own pace until you are ready to write and argue for or against the various issues you have identified.
Each study assignment includes free prescribed reading and AV lectures to help you write a balanced analysis of the topic for online presentation to your private tutor.
During a one-to-one tutorial, your tutor will evaluate your written work for use of English, critical analysis, philosophical content, argumentation, and persuasive style.
Guided home study of English with Philosophy will expand your use of Professional-English as you read, listen, and write to address the issues that concern us today.
Stronger reasoning skills will enable you to think beyond the facts and gain a professional and social advantage that will prove invaluable at work and elsewhere.

Philosophy is relevant to the workplace, where critical reasoning and analysis provide balance to troubleshooting, project management, policy making, and teamwork.
Philosophy looks at beliefs about the world that include the health of society, the limits to knowledge, moral values, use of free will, and our duties to posterity.
Other concerns include the nature of democracy, whether we are selfish, how mind and body interact, and the properties of personal identity and relationships.
This short video is a good example of how philosophy can look at business strategies and suggest how they ought to change for the good of the world:
Philosophical input is valued by manufacturing, marketing, advertising, media production, journalism, IT, the professions, education, sport, and public services.
